News: Motte reported to spring training without any health issues, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Impact: The veteran reliever was sidelined for the first two months of 2016 due to a shoulder injury, but it appears that he'll actually be able to hit the ground running during his contract year with Colorado. Motte was hot and cold throughout last season, concluding the year with a 4.94 ERA and a 9.1 K/9. Given the multitude of other relief options now present in the Rockies' bullpen, Motte will likely fill more of a middle relief role unless injuries deplete Colorado's relief corps.
